On your mark

 

 

I am there

very much

standing alone

in the darkest corner

floating

shivering

in search

of low light

waiting for

the right

answers.

 

a force infusing

within me

seeking the

removal

of the blocks

crossing the

last hurdle

to watch

the flow

movements

in torrents.

 

do not care

for the icy looks

for the upper lips

for cold hands

for the ultimate

rejection

want to

reach out

to begin

afresh.

    The poem’s narrator seems to be waiting for a moment,or an opportunity that will alleviate an innate sense of alienation or isolation.The introspection conveys a brooding disquiet.
